For more than 20 years, the Boston Pops on Nantucket has been the largest and most popular summer event on the island, attracting thousands to Jetties Beach for a night of spectacular entertainment all to raise critical funds for Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Paired with RAIN, A Tribute to the Beatles, conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra will deliver another memorable edition of the concert on August 11, 2018. This year’s event chairs are Sarah and Jeff Newton, longtime summer residents of Nantucket who maintain their primary residence in Concord, MA. Nantucket Island Resorts / Jill and Stephen Karp return once again as presenting sponsors of the Boston Pops on Nantucket concert. Major sponsors returning in 2018 include Fidelity Investments.

In 1997, one of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s most ardent supporters, Kathryn Clauss, had an idea. She wanted to bring the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra to Nantucket to host a benefit concert for the hospital. No one believed she could pull it off, but with a lot of hard work and help from friends, she did.
